The Shop: New Canes

Box of Cane Samples

When I explain how I do my clay work I hit that bit of technical explanation that is canes. The concept is both wonderfully simple but also potentially mind meltingly complex. And making canes can be a lot of tedious work. I make a lot of them because it’s the part of the work I enjoy the most but I know that a lot of smart people want to get down to making the stuff you use canes ON and so they buy the canes I make.

I’ve had a listing for a sample sized box of cane pieces in my shop for years and this picture is a little out of date – it’s from 8 or 9 years ago – but it captures the feeling. I have to mock up a new shot with the current offerings but hey… if you want to try using canes on your work, let me help you out.
